I feel like I'm showing you more and more projects are are failures.
Maybe it's because I'm getting more experimental with my pattern choices in my old age.
I made this jumper to use up the last bits of this safety pin fabric I had from sewalicious. But I didn't have enough for the sleeves so I decided to use this tartan ponte that I recycled from an old dress and have some other pits of the safety pin fabric as the cuffs.
The pattern is the Breton top from the fourth gbsb book. Its actually only the second pattern I've made from this book this first being my asymmetric skirt.....which um also failed.
The patterns quick enough to put together [It doesn't have the cuffs I added then in myself] But I'm not in love with it. Maybe its my fabric choices [I though the safety pins and the tartan was a nice nod to punk rock] or that its such a loose fit. But I kind of wish I'd just tried to squeeze out another raglan jumper.
Oh that's an attractive face. That my how much do I hate this is it worth binning or shall I just save it for slogging about in?
I made it on my overlocker so it took about an hour so Its not like I've lost a whole day of sewing to something I hate.
I posted it on instagram and a few people said they thought it was okay. So maybe I'm just being overly critical?
That said I can't really see myself wearing it a lot. But I have no idea what I could do to refashion it?
I did try taking a photo with the cuff tucked up. I added the cuffs because I couldn't get the whole length of the sleeves from my recycled fabric so I thought I'd need to add some extra on......But LOLZ I have short arms so apparently not.
Son which do you prefer with or without the cuffs?
